I'm probably wrong on this, but Necro just doesnt seem to be a class that is particularly suited to PvP as a primary. Soul Reaping seems as if it wouldn't be particularly useful as it would in PvE, I don't see how you're going to bring minions into combat
before the fight, and I would think that Necros would be outclassed in hexes and DOTs by mesmers.
I'd love to see some opinions on this. I'm a total newb to necros, so I may be completely off base here. I was thinking of making a necro/monk, and I'm just looking for some feedback to see if this is going to be a viable and useful PvP build. Do mesmers outclass necros at what they do best in PvP?
Thanks for any responses. Also, if you could make any comments on subclasses to go along with necro I would appreciate it. From just looking at what I know about necro, it seems it would make a better subclass than primary for PvP.
